Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Van Nuys
Good on sunny days, which is often in CA.
Reliable as far as staying on most times. News since 2020, upload speed dropped drastically from 10Mbps to 1Mbps, I did not ask for download increase to 200Mbps, if this is the trade-off, I do not want it. May have switched service plans or my plan with 0 notification. Customer service as of 20200401 is out, unreachable, both online and on the phone. If it's shared speed slowdown, why is only the upload speed affected? I need fast ping or response with no jitter for gaming and decent upload speed. Would switch to SDSL or Fiberoptic if there was coverage in my area but there isn't. USA is still stretched on copper & cable. The rest of my complaints have been posted already, up the price every year, without reason. Currently paying $90/mon. after tax for Internet & home phone.
